Thank you for 'stopping in'. I will keep the shop as stocked as I can for as long as I can still get supplies in this rapidly changing new reality we are now living in. And of course, custom requests are still welcomed. In order to minimize trips to town and practice 'social distancing', I will be shipping ONCE A WEEK for the time being. :~) For more information, please contact us at email@example.com or use the Contact Us page.

I know most of us don't like to do it, but... sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and swatch!! I rarely bothered, but my recent sweater knitting binge really drove home how important this little task is. But measuring with a ruler or tape wasn't easy, and the gauge I did have only measured over a 2" area. SO, necessity being the mother of invention, I went down to the shop came up with this gauge, which will measure a 4" square swatch, and the T shape makes it easier to count both rows and stitches!! Also on the gauge are metric and imperial handy 5" and 12.5cm rulers, as well as a needle gauge.
Laser cut from 1/4" birch ply, the gauge measures 5" square, and is sanded smooth and finished.
